constructed and properly maintained.

Making sure that skylights, chimneys and windows are entirely caulked and well sealed should be the first move on a homeowner’s quest to prevent unwanted water from getting inside the home. “That’s the biggest one,” said Shawn Huff, the owner of Certified Construction Services LLC in Greenfield.

hat homeowner has not lamented that they have many more belongings than they have storage space? In some homes – particularly older ones – closet space and storage space may be lacking. But savvy homeowners can find both permanent and temporary solutions to their home storage problems. One of the easiest ways to create storage space is to simply remove some belongings from the residence. Go through closets around the house and pick through the attic and/or garage to see

HOW TO W INCREASE STORAGE OPTIONS IN YOUR HOME

He suggested using sealant with the proper elasticity. Because of the local climate that includes four distinct seasons, sealant with the right amount of elasticity will be able to expand and contract with different weather conditions, keeping the water out all year. Huff also suggested repairing or replacing shingles around any area that allows water to penetrate the roof sheathing. Leaks are common around chimneys, plumbing vents and attic vents, and Huff said securing the roof with an ice and water shield that will prevent moisture from getting in is a good way to go. “It’s a small cost to save you from a big cost later.” According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, mold can grow in a home in just 24 hours after a flood or excess water arrives. An ice and water shield installed underneath the shingles will act as a barrier between the inside of the home and outside water. Experts say more than a third of homeowners will experience water damage, and it is the second most often filed insurance claim in the United States. Water

FOR THE CHILDREN In children’s rooms, build bookcases the height of the room so children can store frequently used reading material and toys on the lower levels, and adults can put collectibles and mementos near the top. Hang hooks to hold hats and robes. Whenever possible, look to store items on the walls where they will keep clutter off the floor. if there are any items that can be discarded or donated. Items that are broken can be discarded, while those things that still have utility can be donated or sold. The next step is to maximize the space of your existing closets. Many closets are equipped with just a shelf and a clothing

rack, greatly limiting the storage potential. Investing in a closet organization system is one way to transform a poorly utilized space. Homeowners may have to think vertically to solve storage solutions. Wall space may be abundant in a home where closets are not. Therefore,

BASEMENT FINISHING TIP Keep the possibility of flooding in the back of your head. Homes that are near waterways or at low elevation may be at risk of flooding. Basements are especially susceptible to flood damage. Therefore, think about the practicality of finishing a basement if you are prone to flooding. If you decide to move ahead, take certain precautionary measures, such as keeping electrical wiring up higher and using a more water-resistant flooring material, like tile or vinyl. House important electronics and items on shelves so they are not at ground-level.

leaks and malfunctions usually leave warning signs. When a floor buckles, especially near appliances such as refrigerators and dishwashers, it can be a sign of absorbing water. Water stains around windows or at the bottom of exterior doors is another warning sign: water is getting in. Water stains at the joint between the ceiling and an exterior wall could be a sign for a possible roof leak or an ice dam problem. “Water will always find the lowest spot,” Huff said. The severe weather season is here, and in the aftermath of a damaging storm, individuals looking to make a quick buck may chase the storm in and begin scamming local homeowners with good deals on

repairs, but then they leave and cannot be found when it’s time to do the work. Huff cautioned that these storm damage chasers often roll into town promising cheap fixes but leaving their clients high and dry. To avoid being taken advantage of, Huff said homeowners should use a local business that has a good track record and is established in its community. The storm chasers may make use of local numbers, but Huff suggested that homeowners do the necessary research. Information available from the Weather Channel,, PaintSource.net and the Federal Emerergency Management Agency (FEMA) was used in this report.

shelving and cabinets can be placed to keep items neatly off the floor. Storage can even be created in the bathroom, where the space over the toilet can be used to hang a cabinet to store hand towels and other toiletries if the space under the sink has already been claimed. Ottomans that have a storage compartment can house anything from throw blankets to magazines. An armoire may house the television but also have a pull-out shelf that can hold a laptop computer.

In the kitchen, move food items out of cabinetry and into a “pantry” you create elsewhere in the house, such as a laundry room or garage. This frees up more room for pots and pans. Cabinets that have pull-out shelving help maximize tight recesses of cabinets and keep things organized and in sight. For those with limited cabinets, pots and pans can be hung from a pot rack suspended in the kitchen. Even when there is a small amount of storage space, individuals can find clever ways to neatly store items.

ith the economy still struggling, money is tight for many homeowners. That reality can present a problem to those who want to improve their homes without spending too much money.

AT HOME

BUILDING, CONVERTING A SUN ROOM andy homeowners may be able to convert an existing porch into a three-season room or build one from scratch or assemble the room from a premade kit. However, those homeowners who prefer to leave the work to someone more experienced can hire a contractor. Before getting started, it is best to contact the local building and permits office to determine which building codes for the new room must be met. While screened-in porches may be adequate with a certain level of foundation and structure, rooms that will be using glass panels or standard windows may need some modifications to make them safe. Apply for the necessary permits and have the work inspected to be sure it is legal. Where you locate your sunroom may depend on the direction of the sun or the space you have on the property. Consider your landscape and property lines before doing any building. You may have to reframe certain parts of the room if you are converting a porch to a sunroom. Many homeowners find weatherproofing the room is a good idea. Use construction-grade materials you can commonly find at home improvement centers. Wrapping the room in a material that guards against heat, humidity and moisture will ensure a more comfortable environment once construction is complete.

H

BRIGHT IDEA Be sure to use materials that will accommodate the addition of heavier, thicker glass or windows.

MISTAKESTOAVOID FIVE GREAT TIPS BEFORE BUYING A HOME he dream of home ownership is one that lives on in spite of the global economic struggles. The process of buying a home can be an emotional roller coaster ride, with feelings of excitement mixed in with exhaustion, fear and uncertainty. Prospective buyers -- particularly those who have never purchased a home before -- should avoid the following mistakes that buyers make regardless of whether the market is up or down.

T

Failure to get qualified beforehand. Mortgage qualification is essential when buying a home, as it gives buyers preapproval for a loan before they make any offers. Making an offer on a home before you know what the bank is willing to lend you is a waste of time for everyone involved, including you, the seller and the real estate agents involved. Some agents will not show a home if you don’t have a preapproval. Once preapproved for a loan, don’t take any steps that might put that approval in jeopardy. This includes anything that might drastically alter your credit score. Being blindsided by additional costs. First-time homebuyers, once they have moved into their home, often experience some sticker shock when the additional expenses associated with home ownership arise. These additional expenses — such as property tax and insurance costs — can be substantial. Even those buying a condominium or co-op should expect monthly maintenance fees even if their new place is brand new and needs no maintenance. Shooting for the moon. First-time and even veteran buyers must avoid shooting for the moon when it comes

to buying a home, and instead only buy one they know they can afford. What the banks says you can afford isn’t always the same as what you know you can afford. Only buy a home you know you can afford, regardless of whether the bank has approved you for a larger loan. Pigeonholing yourself into an inadequate living situation. Just like buyers shouldn’t go overboard, they also must avoid compromising on the things that are most important to them. But if a home is what you really want, and another living situation that mirrors apartment life is going to make you miserable, don’t settle for that situation for the sake of security. Doing so could cost you financially, especially when you realize the situation isn’t what you’d hoped for and look to sell earlier than is ideal. Skimping on the cost of an inspector. An inspector is your last chance to find out if a home is your dream home or a money pit. Even if a house appears to be everything you want, don’t close on the sale until the house has been thoroughly inspected.

AT HOME BRIGHT IDEA Use compact fluorescent lightbulbs instead of incandescent lightbulbs. CFLs use one-quarter to one-third less energy than traditional incandescent lightbulbs. In addition, the Alliance to Save Energy notes that CFLs can last up to 10 times longer than traditional lightbulbs.

CUT HOME ENERGY COST omeowners spend thousands of dollars per year on energy. Whether a home is big or small, energy costs are a concern for homeowners. Though some of the costs of home ownership are beyond a person’s control, there are some steps homeowners can take to reduce energy costs and save substantial amounts of money as a result. Address any leaks. One of the most effective ways to cut energy costs is to weather strip doors and windows throughout the house. Doing so will keep warm air in the house when it’s cold and prevent drafts that occur when cold air enters the home through cracks and leaks. If a home has an attic, be sure to seal pipes, chimneys or ductwork. Addressing leaks can save homeowners as much as 10 percent on their annual home energy costs. Be mindful of the thermostat. Most homeowners and their families spend a good portion of their day out of the house. Home heating costs can be reduced by as much as 20 percent if homeowners simply lower the thermostat during the day by 10 F. For homeowners who feel they won’t remember to do so on a regular basis, a programmable thermostat will do the job on its own. Lower water temperature. Lowering water temperature can also lead to substantial savings. Homeowners can save as much as five percent on their water bill by lowering the temperature on their water heater by as little as 10 F. When doing so, touch the outside of the water heater. If the outside is cold, the water heater has sufficient insulation If the water heater is hot to the touch, wrap a water heater jacket around it to increase efficiency.

HOWTOPICKBUILDERS QUICK TIPS TO MAKE YOUR PROJECT EASIER hether the kids have all grown up and moved out or if the kids are on the way and it’s time to expand a living area, building a new home is an exciting, yet often agonizing, experience. The reasons for building a new home are many, but regardless of the reason, the process of choosing a builder should remain the same. Look for a builder with a solid reputation. A builder’s reputation speaks volumes, but it doesn’t have to speak for itself. That’s because a builder who has spent years providing personal service, innovative design and quality workmanship will no doubt have a host of happy former customers ready and willing to offer their input. If during the interview process a builder appears reticent to share his work or experiences with previous customers, this should be a red flag. Reputable builders will be proud of their work and more than willing to show it off. Find a builder who is flexible. You will be paying to build your home, not the builder’s home. A builder should be flexible and ready and willing to meet your needs, no matter how unique they might be. Look for a builder who does more than build. A good builder should do more than just build. A builder should provide a network of qualified professionals to make the process go more smoothly. This network should include real estate and building consultants, interior

designers, architects and engineers. Such connections can provide peace of mind and will also illustrate that a builder is both respected in the community and is intent on ensuring your home becomes the dream home you envision it to be. Don’t build on the cheap. Buyers who plan to build their own home are in the unique position to ensure their home is as safe and high-quality as possible. This isn’t always the case when buying a resale, so make the most of your opportunity and use only top-of-theline construction materials and features and choose a builder with experience in working with such materials and features. Building on the cheap could prove disastrous in the not too distant future, so don’t sacrifice on quality when building a new home.
